NASSAU, The Bahamas — The official match ball for the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Bahamas 2017 was revealed to the public on Arawak Cay beach Friday, January 27, during a launching ceremony.
The Adidas Praia ball was presented to Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. Perry Christie by soccer team member Lesley St. Fleur in a unique way, showcasing the culture and beauty of The Bahamas: a traditional Bahamian scull boat brought St. Fleur and the ball to shore as as a local band played Bahamian music.
Prime Minister Christie said he and his government are in full support of the event. (BIS Photos/Raymond A. Bethel, Sr.)
